Day 21: Seoul (Gangnam Underground Shopping)

Yesterday, we happened to pass by the underground shopping on our way back to the subway station. I told myself, well this was another place to explore and I didn't regret it at all.

Gangnam Underground Shopping
The underground shopping is huge and has most diversified merchandise compared to those I visited earlier. Clothing, accessories, homeware, kitchenware, flowers, paintings, etc. Next time when I move to a new house, I'll fly to Seoul and buy everything from here. I'm not kidding!

Mostly female clothings

How could I not fall in love with these?

Home decoration

Artificial flowers

These are definitely my favourites. :D

Real flowers

More real flowers

And more!!

I spent my whole day here and feeling tizzy. Should I buy or shouldn't I? There were so many household items that I wanted to buy but after thinking through I didn't get any of them at all. Nice to have but not necessary, that's how I psyched myself repeatedly. :P

This was our last night in Seoul and we went back to the restaurant that served raw beef. Time really flies. :(

After came back from dinner, I gathered all my shopping stuffs on the bed to see how I fared. Hmm... actually it wasn't that many, I know many of my friends could do it better. :) And the wonderful part was all these cost me less than half an LV bag. I think I don't need to shop in Singapore anymore until end of this year.

So, here is the list of my top shopping cities:
1. Seoul
2. Taipei
3. New York (or the factory outlets across US)
4. Bangkok
5. Hong Kong

The shopping spree of 3 weeks (~100 hours).

We finished packing in three hours, both our luggage had been extended to the max to fit in all these. Luckily I didn't buy more things from the underground shopping, if not I'm sure I will get scolding from hubby. :P
